    I'll take it outside tomorrow when we have some sunshine and get a good shot or two in the good light.
    It's a fine line between brilliant and stupid-I know that line, its the one my wife says I cross many times per day. We don't even have a hint here what "it" is-are we even in the proper forum to discuss this?

    I think he's talking about the green bar tape.....at least you can change that in a few minutes and it's a cheap fix if you opt for something else.

    The standard white is always nice......

    Yes I meant that the OP bought an "it" and we don't know what it is, I was combining two points in my head and wasnt clear at all, thanks for straightening me out, all this rain is affecting me....

    Talking

    Here it is!




    I put on a modern saddle because the only older ones that fit me are a Brooks, and I wanted it to stay race-y looking. I also put on eggbeaters because I have some awesome mountain biking sneakers with recessed cleats that allow me to walk around like a normal person and still get the benefits of clipless.

    Any thoughts on the tape?

    Wait I'm confused.....I thought you were buying a Merckx? I guess you went another route?

    Nice looking bike nonetheless, but a white saddle and white tape would really finish it off nicely. Say it with me now......."the saddle should always match the bar tape"

    Yeah, I derailed. I figured a Paramount Schwinn was in the same league as a Merck Corsa, so when I got the offer I jumped on it.

    About the bar tape and saddle, normally I agree but I don't want it to look like a ghost bike. If it had something in the paint job other than pure white I'd totally agree with you.

    The green is... definitely interesting. Got some un-elicited compliments from a tough crowd today. I think it's on to stay.
